Murder charges filed in airman’s death
An U.S. Air Force airman based at Joint Base Elemendorf-Richardson was indicted last week on murder and tampering with evidence charges in the April killing of fellow airman Clinton Reeves.
According to the indictment, James Devinn Thomas, 24, allegedly killed Reeves on April 19 while attempting a robbery. Thomas is also charged with trying to conceal his crime.
Reeves was last seen April 19 after leaving work at JBER. His red Dodge Avenger was discovered abandoned in Anchorage later that month.
Reeves’ body was discovered May 8 by a group of women hiking near the top of Skyline Drive.
